University to Offer Free Online Course Based on 'Walking Dead'
A California university is adding one more "R" to the essential school elements--reading, writing, arithmetic and reanimation.
University of California, Irvine is bringing a new course to its online offerings centered on the AMC hit series The Walking Dead.
The zombie show, one of cable's most popular programs, will inspire lessons in public health, physics, math and, hopefully, nothing of a dietary nature.
The eight-week course will be free and open to the public around the world, and it will be hosted through Instructure’s Canvas Network program. UC Irvine has tapped professors Zuzanna Bic, Joanne Christopherson, Michael Dennin and Sarah Eichhorn, spanning a variety of disciplines, to teach.
